|Thanks for the replies! :o)|
I've been through the menu and looked at the options but the OSD has very little in it to be honest and the only move options are to move the position of the OSD itself, no options to stretch or shrink the picture :o(
When I use Catalyst to change the res it has two categories of resolution, Basic and HD. If I use a Basic res (goes up to 1680x1050) the full screen is used, but if I use on of the HD res options it goes back to having the black bar round the outside.
I can't see any difference when running catalyst in compatability mode either, an option to resize and move the image is there when using a VGA connection to the monitor but not when using the HDMI lead.
Its really frustrating as its a really nice monitor but I just cannot get it to work properly. Called Acer and they told me it was a software issue and that I had to call their premium 50 pence a minute line to sort it out....
